Inspiring Explorers Expedition™ South Georgia

Applications are now closed

Presented by respected operator Antarctica21, Antarctic Heritage Trust’s ninth Inspiring Explorers Expedition™ will honour the centenary year of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s final expedition (Quest 1921–1922) which journeyed to South Georgia and marked the end of the heroic-era of Antarctic exploration.

It will provide an opportunity for 22 young New Zealanders aged 18-30 to explore South Georgia Island, connect with the legacy the Trust cares for and embrace their spirit of exploration.

Mount Worsley Climb

As part of our wider Inspiring Explorers Expedition™ South Georgia, three members of the team will have the added opportunity to join Expedition leader, Nigel Watson, and two professional mountaineering guides on the first Kiwi ascent of Mount Worsley, in recognition of Kiwi explorer Frank Worsley, the mountain’s namesake.
